Basket with Rope to Lift Goods from Street to Window

It was one of my first days in Istanbul, and I was sitting in the living room of my couchsurfing host when some outside the window caught my attention:

A lady in a building across the street was hanging outside of her window lowering a basket down to the street with a rope.

I watched as a clerk from a grocery store walked up to the basket, put some food in it, and then the lady pulled it back up to the window.

“What is going on?” I asked my host.

“Oh, the lady calls to the grocery store and a man comes and puts food in the basket and takes the money.”
